Nythe Lake Community Action Day
Barbara I and would like to thank everyone who came out to help us at Nythe Lake Community Action Day. We strimmed bushes and grass, removed branches and have opened it all back up. We removed two trolleys, a scooter, a shop till and loads of bags of rubbish. Please take the time to have a walk around the lake and have a look for yourself. I can fully recommend the view from the bench. Covingham will be my next area to do.
Pavement resurfacing Covingham
I am pleased to say that more pavements around the Smitan Brook area have been resurfaced. Whilst we can’t get every path and road done we will continue to keep pushing for more to be done.
I am pleased to say that Hawkswood has been resurfaced.
Liden Now Has A Defibrillator
I have never taken my Parish Councillors allowance and have invested it all back into the community.
This year, I decided to put it with some left over Liden Fun Day money to buy a defibrillator.
The defibrillator is now stored in Tesco’s in Liden due to the opening hours plus they have a trained First Aider which is a bonus.
Hopefully it will never have to be used but if it saves one person’s life it will be worth every penny.
A large Police operation took place in Eldene to combat drug dealing and anti-social behaviour caused by gangs in the area.
Police officers in uniform and plain clothes and PCSOs have taken part in the operation targeting suspected drug users and drug dealers.
Operations have also taken place in Liden and Nythe and arrests have been made.
Next month I will talk about County Lines.
Nythe Primary School
Nythe Primary School is consulting to lower the age range of Nythe Primary School to 2-11 from 1st September 2019.
The pre-school lease expires in July 2019 and operates a maintained nursery.
Nythe Primary School is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted. There is currently capacity for 210 pupils at the school, the proposal to lower the age range of the school to include early years provision will see the total capacity rise to 262 pupils.
Drivers to be fined for inconsiderate parking
After asking residents to comment on the proposal earlier this year, the Council will be issuing Penalty Charge Notices of up to £113 from 1 October under the Traffic Management Act, if drivers block dropped kerbs and driveways or double park.
The enforcement action is being introduced following concerns raised by residents over the effect this type of parking has on pedestrians with pushchairs, mobility scooters, people using wheelchairs, those with visual impairments and households with driveways.
